and the senate hoping to delay new sanctions by congress that could derail negotiations with tehran. over the weekend u.n. inspectors arrived to begin inspections on a nuclear facility there. president obama called it a critical first step before adding that the negotiations will in no way weaken the position of the united states. >> if at the end of six months it turns out that we can't make a deal, we're no worse off and, in fact, we have greater leverage with the international community to continue to apply sanctions and even strengthen them. if you ask me what is the likelihood that we're able to arrive at the end state i was just describing earlier, i wouldn't say that it's more than 50/50. but we have to try. >> defense secretary chuck hagel has touched down in pakistan today. the first time in three years a pentagon chief has visited that country. hagel met with their prime minister to discuss tensions over drone strikes and military operations near the border with afghanistan. he spent the weekend in afghanistan visiting u.s. troops. he did not meet with afghan president hamid kar

the whole idea of obama care, right, and who famously, the citizens of kentucky have reaped the benefit. kentucky now leads the nation in new sign-ups for health insurance, and that would be huge anywhere. it is a particularly huge deal for a state whose population is as unhealthful as kentucky's is. i don't mean any offense by it, but kentucky's population ranks at the bottom or toward the bottom of the nation's health ratings in lots and lots and lots of different categories, and kentucky has a lot of uninsured people. and it's the exact same deal two states over in mississippi, but in these two states, in the same part of the country, with the same health problems in their populations and a lot of the same challenges, one of them, kentucky, is now best in the nation in terms of people getting health insurance, and one of them, mississippi, is now worst in the nation, and not because they wouldn't know how to fix their problem. they knew how to fix their problem, but they stopped fixing it. mississippi has enrolled a smaller percentage of its population than any other state in the nat
